Aarhus BSS is expected to move its activities at Fuglesangs All to the new University City in the summer of 2025. This will gather all of the school’s activities in Aarhus across Nørrebrogade.
The construction of the new buildings for the Department of Management and the Department of Economics and Business Economics has started, including 37,000 square metres of study and teaching facilities as well as a round lecture theatre for 800 people. At the same time, areas of building 1850 are being prepared so that selected departments in the school’s joint administrative centre may join the move to the new University City.
Different planning activities are carried out concurrently with the construction work, including decisions related to the design, layout and technology on the new premises.
There has been a round of tenders for the construction of the facilities for Aarhus BSS in the new University City. The contract was awarded to turnkey contractor A. Enggaard A/S, AART Architects, LYTT Landscape and NIRAS, who will work together in constructing the facilities on the new premises.
All proposals were based on the general principles for Campus 2.0, including the principles of securing physical proximity between researchers and students and opening the school and AU up to the outside world. Other guiding principles were to ensure a good academic environment, to support the teaching formats of the future and to strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration.
In autumn 2018, there was a broad consultation process at the school. In addition, a series of workshops were held in autumn 2021 for the departments directly involved in the move.
During all phases of the construction work, the school will continue to involve relevant users in order to qualify the many decisions in the project.
Throughout the construction work and towards the move, relevant forums and the departments will be kept informed of the project. In addition, information about the process will be communicated through this Campus 2.0 website. You can read more in the relevant news articles further down on this page.
Nanna Calmar Andersen is the project manager for the construction process at Aarhus BSS and is responsible for safeguarding the school’s interests in the University City.
